? >> this is the first time since 1974 that majority of americans see this country as not powerful, as powerful as a decade ago. they are less respected and think that their country is not important on the global stage and the reason why is the foreign policy. putting obama care aside which is awful, a lot has to do with foreign policy. we saw what happened in syria the president made a huge mistake. putin provided a lifeline and our deal with iran. we came to the country as a strong country and we walked away as a weak one. he promised a immigration and great economy and affordable health care, we don't have that. >> there are polls that show majority of americans do favor the president's position on immigration, but they give him a low approval rating on the issue. is obama care is a blemish on every other issue that he is trying to do things on? >> it is probably at the root of the ratings problem. to say otherwise would not be truthful. but immigration is an interesting number. i hate to say this but it is true. americans by and large. you go out to the average every day american, immigrati

in this country has increased by just 2%. many economists believe because there aae not enough jobs, workers have to take less pay. seems to make sense. president obama, though, he believes that the federal government can change that situation. however, in five years, his theory has not produced results. nevertheless, the president remains undaunted. >> we need to set aside the belief that government cannot do anything about reducing inequality. it's true that government cannot prevent all of the downsides of the technological change and global competition that are out there right now, but we've also seen how government action time and again can make an enormous difference in increasing opportunity and bolstering ladders into the middle class. >> an enormous difference? i haven't seen it, have you? maybe he's talking about fdr's new deal or social security or something like that, but presently? big government and high taxation seem to be holding back the private sector and job creation. and the left seems to want it that way. yesterday, "the new york times" editorialized, "the emphasis on cutting
